What is Soft Wash?

A “no pressure” environmentally safe and effective chemical cleaning system killing the stain-causing algae rather than just removing the surface stains.

Precision Cleaning vs. High-Pressure Cleaning

Trust us… there’s a difference.

The Unique Precision Cleaning System

Dark stains on your roof are caused primarily by a persistent type of algae. The Precision Cleaning System gently removes the staining without harming the roof itself. AND it kills the algae and other harmful organisms so the stains don’t come back!

  • The microorganisms that cause roof staining actually have tiny root systems which physically break down asphalt roof shingles, allowing larger types of organisms to grow on your roof. The Precision Cleaning System kills these roots and applies an algaecide & fungicide to protect against future attacks.

  • Precision Cleaning uses sodium hypochlorite (bleach), which is necessary to remove harmful algae, bacteria, mold, and fungus with nearly 100% efficiency.

  • During use and disposal, 95% to 98% of bleach rapidly breaks down into salt and water, so there’s no need to worry about environmental harm. The remaining byproducts are effectively treated by municipal wastewater and septic systems.

  • Sodium hypochlorite is the same chemical used to sanitize and brighten our swimming pools.

  • Precision Cleaning application is very fast and you’ll see results immediately!

  • Our cleaning solution is applied with an electric pump, which greatly minimizes noise and pollution.

High Pressure Water

High-pressure water “cleans” by reducing the staining on your roof, but doesn’t kill the microorganisms that cause it. AND, it doesn’t just remove stains – it removes bits of your roof too, greatly shortening its lifespan. 

  • Without the introduction of the correct chemical formula to sanitize the roof, power washers only strip away the top of the algae bloom, leaving behind the living roots.

  • Pressure washing negates the manufacturer’s warranty of most roofing materials.

  • Power washing blasts the spores of algae, fungus, and mold deeper into surface cracks and fissures in building materials, encouraging quick re-growth.

  • Pressure washing is not ideal for maintenance cleanings. Repeated blowing and blasting of water on building surfaces accelerates deterioration, and this gives tiny roots more places to take hold.

  • Power washers can strip away paint, damage siding, and even crack windows if not carefully done.

  • Pressure washing uses noisy gasoline engines and takes about 3 times longer than Precision Cleaning.
